Somehow, in its 11 years of existence, I only watched “Love Actually” for the first time this past weekend. It was heartwarming, it was enduring, it was uplifting and I freakin’ loved it, which is what makes the timing of Amy Adams’ guest spot on “Saturday Night Live” this week even more perfect.
In a “Love Actually” spoof called “Christmas Romance,” Amy opens her door to find a man, “SNL”‘s Pete Davidson, holding up a series of signs. She quickly realizes that he might be trying to profess his love for her, but after a few more minutes of signage, what he actually reveals is SO much better. In fact, the writers at “SNL” did such a fantastic job, that Amy eventually can’t keep a straight face anymore and struggles to keep it together as Pete does his thing (also holding back the giggles). This is why I love Christmas.
Over the holidays, I finally saw “American Hustle,” starring Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale, Amy Adams, and Jennifer Lawrence. Depending on who you ask, the movie is either THE BEST OF THE YEAR or a complete disaster. Or, if you were to ask me, I would tell you that the movie is okay, but worth seeing for three reasons: 1) the first scene, in which Christian Bale styles his awesomely atrocious combover for, like, three minutes; 2) Jennifer Lawrence’s fairly ridiculous half-Jersey/half-California accent; and 3) Amy Adams’ fucking gorgeous makeup game. Regarding the latter: can we bring dewy makeup back please? It’s so youthful and fresh and who doesn’t want that just got fucked flush? Keep reading »
Amy Adams was spotted wearing this ensemble leaving the Dorchester Hotel in Manhattan on Friday. (Am I the only one who prefers to think that the proper way to pronounce “Dorchester” is “Dorchestah”? Yes? Okay.) I love the way leaving a few buttons undone ratchets up the hotness of this look by a factor of a zillion. But while Adams’ outfit looks relatively simple it’s also pretty expensive. Like, we know for a fact that she’s wearing $450 Alexander McQueen flats. Who has that kind of money to spend on grey ballet flats? (Amy Adams.) Here’s how to get the look for a lot less.

The 85th Academy Awards are this Sunday, and some of our favorite actresses have been nominated to take home the gold. We couldn’t be more proud of their career achievements… but we also want to know, what are they going to wear? Or more accurately, we want them to know what we think they should wear. Got that? We can’t count on Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Lawrence, Naomi Watts, Amy Adams, and Anne Hathaway heeding our attempts at styling, but there’s no harm in trying. If I were dressing these five Oscar nominees, here’s what I would put them in…
The esteemed celebrity talk show “Between Two Ferns,” hosted by my boyfriend Zach Galifianakis, has at long last returned from an agonizing nine-month hiatus (did Zach have a baby or something?). Better yet, it’s back with a special Oscars edition, featuring interviews with Academy Award nominees Jennifer Lawrence, Naomi Watts, Christoph Waltz, Anne Hathaway, and Amy Adams. Hathaway’s performance is groan-worthy, to say the very least, but if you’ve ever wanted to hear The Impossible Naomi Watts talk about diarrhea, now’s your chance! Also, I don’t know if it’s the pneumonia or what, but Jennifer Lawrence has, like, the sexiest voice of all time. I would like to borrow her vocal cords. Weird! Anyway, get ready to shudder with secondhand awkwardness! [Gawker]
